Kenya to host expo to showcase agricultural technologies 

NAIROBI, (Xinhua) -- The Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization (KARLO) in partnership with local and international manufacturing entities will on Saturday host an exhibition in the resort town of Naivasha to showcase technologies and innovations that are modernizing farming, organizers said on Thursday.

The Farm-Tech Expo Kenya will provide a platform for key stakeholders in the agriculture value chains like farmers, agro-dealers, scientists and extension workers to network and share ideas on revitalizing a sector that contributes an estimated 25 percent to the East African nation’s GDP.

“We believe the expo will provide an all-round platform to network, market and share knowledge on how best to harness the power of technology in agriculture and ensure the best outcome for farmers’ produce,” said Eliud Kireger, the KARLO director general.

He revealed that KARLO will showcase cutting edge research products and services available within its 16 affiliate institutes during the two-day expo.

The inaugural Farm-Tech Expo Kenya is expected to showcase emerging opportunities in the country’s agriculture sector that could be harnessed to catalyze economic progress.

Kireger said Kenya has potential to transition from subsistence farming to a thriving agri-business hub subject to enactment of friendly policies, technology adoption and capacity development for farmers.

Dominique de Lauwere, the event director of the inaugural Farm-Tech Expo Kenya, said it will help showcase the potential of mechanized farming to make Kenya a food secure and economically vibrant country.
